Factoring Quadratic Equations

Intro

Factoring quadractic equations is an essential skill in Algebra 2. This skill may seem difficult at first but it’s actually pretty simple once you understand the steps.

Sample Problem

Question source

X^2-7x+2=-10

Solution

x^2-7x+2=-10
                      Set the equation equal to 0 and add 
                      10 to both sides
x^2-7x+2+10=0
                      Add 10+2 and begin factoring
x^2-7x+12=0
                      For factoring look at what numbers 
                      add to -7 and multiply to +12  
(x-4)(x-3)=0
                      Now set up the individual equations
x-4=0 or x-3=0
                      Solve for x
x=4 or x=3
